When Little Yellow Bicycle sent me the Cycling Team box for the Fern and Forest Boy collection, I immediately thought of owls and wanted to make an altered project.
I started this project with a scene paper from Fern and Forest Boy. The clouds and woodgrain were the perfect backdrop.
Next, I played around with paper-piecing an pair of owls. It took a couple tries to get the scale right. I drew the owls on paper first. As you can see, in my first attempt, the mama owl was too big.
I scaled down the mama owl, then added a paper-pieced baby owl. I stitched each part separately, then pop dotted pieces for dimension.
Once I had my owls ready, I filled in the rest of the scene and added a wood frame.
I used pieces from Little Yellow Bicycle's Naturals, including the burlap sticker here and the cork butterfly and stick pin, to fill the empty spots.
Here's the finished canvas:
